Event description

Description

Watch live theater productions from the UK right here in Skaneateles! The library is hosting a season of National Theatre Live in 2018, which will be shown at Waterman Auditorium. Each NTL broadcast is filmed in front of a live theater audience, allowing movie-goers world-wide to view the productions on screen as if they were actually there.

Our fall production is Frankenstein, returning to international cinemas to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s most famous novel. Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

About the play: Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. This screening casts Cumberbatch as the Creature.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Met with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Total run-time (including trailers and credits): 2 hours, 20 minutes

Suggested rating: UK broadcast rated for 15 & older, suggested R in the US
